5:00am
>> i'm going to rip through this suit. >> yes. make sure you keep your abs engaged, your not working back and forth. deltoids, shoulder caps. there are many shoulder exercises. today we're going to do front raises. >> i don't like these at all. >> you don't like these? >> no. >> shoulder height. >> if you plan on doing the side raises next i'm not doing them. you can do front raises. that's fine. biceps, triceps and deltoids, a little circuit with these. stick with lightweights. that's fine. high reps. >> how many? >> 15 to 20 if you're using light curls. repeat a couple of times. if you're doing heavy weights, do lower reps. >> you start losing muscle after the age of 30. >> you also have to boost the
5:01am
protein. >> exactly. make sure you're taking in protein after you work out to help the muscle recover. >> i have to get to my muscle milk. >> you do. >> i do, i do. thank you so much. >> thank you, victor. so help you god? >> so help me god. good morning, everyone. welcome to this special edition of "cnn saturday morning." it is saturday, january 19th. i'm randi kaye, coming to you live this morning from the national mall as we gear up for the 57th presidential inauguration. all morning, our cnn political team will be bringing you the very latest on all the preparations for the big day, happening on monday, of course. and the biggest challenges facing president obama in his second term. first, let me say good morning once again and bring in my
5:02am
colleague, victor blackwell in atlanta. i know you have some of the latest on some of the other major news outside the beltway, of course. >> absolutely. had to get settled back into my seat after the big workout this morning. for the past two days, he confessed to oprah winfrey in an exclusive two-part interview. the u.s. anti-doping agency still wants lance armstrong to come clean under oath. in a frank and really revealing interview, armstrong told miss winfrey about the years of systematic drug use on the u.s. postal service cycling team but he continued to decline accusations that he forced members of the team to dope. >> i was the leader of the team. i wasn't the manager, general manager, the director, the -- >> but if someone was not doing something to your satisfaction, could you get them fired? >> it depends what they're doing. if you're asking me somebody on the team says i'm not going to dope. >> yeah. >> and i say you're fired?
5:03am
>> yes. >> absolutely not. >> could you -- >> could i? i guess i could have, but i never did. >> ed laveandera is in armstrong's hometown in texas. i want to focus on his teammates and many testified to usada about a code of silence. we're showing video of him making zipped lip motions on the tour. a lot of people believe that's in reference to keeping quiet. what's been the response to his former teammates to this confession? >> many of those former teammates are struggling to make sense of the two-part interview and trying to come to terms with everything that lance said. this is one of those areas of the interview where there's still a great deal of controversy and disagreement over it. and, remember, 11 former teammates had come forward and
5:04am
testified in that united states anti-doping agency report that was released about four months ago. many of which have said that lance armstrong set the tone and it was the expectation that many of them, if they were to consider to be the top riders on his team, that they would be expected and required to use the performance-enhancing drugs. we heard from one of his former teammates earlier this week. >> a lot of -- a lot of us tried to tell this story to the world more than a decade ago. and the ones who did just got annihilated by lance armstrong. >> you know, victor, that kind of speaks to what exactly -- one of the major reasons why this interview has garnered so much attention this week, not simply that lance armstrong denied using performance-enhancing drugs for so long, but the
5:05am
manner in which he went after many of the people who, in many cases, didn't necessarily didn't want to come forward but were compelled to come forward because they had been is upped and forced to testify under oath. that's how a lot of this started coming to light. lance armstrong vigorously attacked those people over the years. that is what has been the hardest for many people to accept and don't necessarily buy into the fact that lance armstrong is fully contrite and apologetic over what he has done. >> what about the people he sued? not just the people who came forward and made the claims that we all now know are true, what is he saying about that? >> reporter: in one case, especially about the team ma masseuse, who in many cases made intercountry drug runs, in one case driving 18-hour round trip between spain and france to pick up performance-enhancing drugs. many of these people were sued
5:06am
and lance armstrong almost appeared to not be able to remember just how many people his team had sued over the years. but he says it was really all a design to be able to keep control of his personal narrative. >> i was used to controlling everything in my life. i controlled every outcome in my life. >> you've been doing that forever? >> yeah, especially when it comes to sport. but the last thing i'll say is that now the story is so bad and so toxic. and a lot of it is true. >> reporter: you know, victor, what's interesting is that oprah ended the interview by asking lance armstrong if he will rise again and lance armstrong simply said, i don't know. i don't know what's out there. >> ed lavandera in austin, texas, for us. we will see if, indeed, lance armstrong will rise again. thank you. this was an atypical week.
5:07am
another big sports story that had nothing to do with a game, nothing to do with competition. it's this manti todayo story and this fake girlfriend. he says he was duped and had no part in the hoax. he also says he has no real idea why he was targeted. we'll see what happens with that. let's go back to washington where randi kaye is at the national mall. hopefully it's starting to warm up now that the sun is up. 8:06 there in d.c. >> oh, yeah. sun's coming up. the sun is up. we have a nice, big heater about the size of a small car to my left over here. so that certainly helps. they're taking good care of us here on the set at cnn. even as washington prepares for president obama's inauguration, it's also vowing to do everything necessary to protect americans in a harrowing hostage crisis unfolding in algeria. dan rivers is in london to bring us the very latest this morning.
5:08am
dan, good morning to you. algeria is defending a military operation that now has left at least one american and 11 others dead. what can you tell us about that? >> absolutely. this situation is not over yet. i think that is the headline. they're saying they're still pursuing terrorists and some hostages within this sprawling gas plant in the far south of algeria. as you say, the state department has confirmed one death. it's been widely reported he is from texas. the state department not going into further details about how many americans may still be missing. we're waiting for an update from london from the british foreign secretary william hague, chairing an emergency meeting about this. algerian state television is reporting that terrorists were planning to kill all of the hostages and to blow up this
5:09am
plant. so, it could have been a lot worse, had they managed to get through that. in the end algerians went in, freed some 650 people. there are still some 30 western hostages missing. >> do we know where those who have escaped or have been freed, where they have been taken to? >> some have come through london on specially chartered planes. a number of norwegians have also been freed. they've come back through london to norway, to bergen, where the headquarters is based, the norwegian company involved in this plant. the u.s. also has had a c-130 who flew 12 people out who were wounded. none of those are americans. there is a huge international effort going on to try to get these people out and to help. they're not being given much access to the plant itself down in the far south simply because
5:10am
this is a live military operation with ale jeern special forces still searching this sprawling gas plant to try to find the remaining hostages and the remaining terrorists. >> and what more can you tell us about those plastic explosives that were strapped to some of these survivors? >> this guy, stephen mcfall, an irish citizen who escaped, he had an amazing escape. he said he had plastic explosives strapped to him, sort of around his neck. he was bound and gagged with explosives around his neck, bundled into one of five cars or trucks that tried to then make a run for it with the terrorists. four of the trucks were blown up by the algerian special forces from helicopters. one survived and rolled over. he was in the one that wasn't hit and somehow managed to get out unhurt. you can imagine just the terror that these people have gone through, the incredible ordeal they've gone through in the past four days. >> yeah. it is incredible and it's not
5:11am
over yet, as you said. dan rivers, thank you very much for the update from london for us this morning. meanwhile, back here at home, we are setting the stage for the second term. the president has already put one issue front and center and that is guns. how much pressure is he ready to apply to get those new gun laws and gun reform into place? we'll talk about that with political expert ron brownstein. when you have diabetes...
5:12am
your doctor will say get smart about your weight. i tried weight loss plans... but their shakes aren't always made for people with diabetes. that's why there's glucerna hunger smart shakes. they have carb steady, with carbs that digest slowly to help minimize blood sugar spikes. and they have six grams of sugars. with fifteen grams of protein to help manage hunger... look who's getting smart about her weight.

5:13am
5:14am
my fellow americans, ask not what your country can do for you. ask what you can do for your country. >> hundreds of thousands of people are starting to descend on washington for president obama's second inauguration. but this morning we are looking past the oath of office to the next four years, the issues, plans and prospects. joining me now is ron brownstein, senior political analyst and editorial director for the national journal.
5:15am
do you like our set? >> fabulous. >> nice to be here, huh? >> little bit of history. >> not too shabby. let's talk about the issue certainly that's been for the last few weeks, guns. >> yeah. >> do you think the president will keep up the pressure if congress is slow to react or even brushes off the first steps of legislation? >> yeah. broader point, second terms have been pretty tough for presidents. we've had a couple of presidents impeached in their second term, iran-contra scandal in the second term. so as you wonder, halfway through they wonder why they bothered to get re-elected but i think president obama is in a position to put pressure on the congress because of the nature in which he won. he demonstrated there is now at the presidential level a pretty reliable consistent majority coalition that democrats have. and there's incentive for republicans to try to shake up this electoral alignment. and i think that gives him some
5:16am
leverage on several issues. guns to some extent. immigration even more so. >> and certainly we've seen a change in the president in the last few weeks. is this something that we can expect in the second term, do you think, overall, a more aggressive president obama? >> i think clearly. look what happened here. again, i go back to the election. democrats have often been con strained on some of these issues. guns is a perfect issue. we went over a decade where democrats didn't talk about the issue, largely by the fear of losing conservative white voters, blue collar voters, older voters. the president lost all those voters. he did badly with all of them and still won and he won 332 electoral college votes. as you look across the agenda on a number of issues, whether it was gay marriage, the dream act last year, guns this year, there's a certain sense of liberation that comes from having a coalition behind him that's more in tune with what he
5:17am
wants to do and not as dependent as democrats used to be on voters that are somewhat distant. >> he has an extra spring in his st step, doesn't he? >> absolutely. he feels he has the republicans back on their heels. overreach is a common risk of presidents in their second term. classic example is franklin roosevelt wins the election, tries to change the supreme court. it all comes tumbling down. the president has to be conscious of that. divide republicans between those who believe the party has to try to rebuild itself, rebuild the national majority and those that are locked into a staunchly conservative view? >> even with the supreme court's decision, would you expect that it will still play a large role in the second term? >> it's absolutely critical for him to be able to make this work. his re-election means republicans in congress will not be able to repeal it. >> and next year is when we really start to feel the impact. >> absolutely. he is still in hand-to-hand
5:18am
combat with governors in particular in implementing it. a number of republican governors have refused to set up what's required, and the public component of expansion of coverage. there's lots of challenges of moving 30 million more people into an insurance-based system. so that could mean enormous implementation challenges and enormous political challenges in this ongoing struggle with the states. >> i know you touched on it. what would you say a real difference is between the first term and second term for a president? >> in the second term, first of all, you're not worrying about re-election. you saw that, for example, in the debt ceiling fight. first debt ceiling fight in 2011, the president could not go to the brink, because he was worried if they went over the brink -- >> sure. >> -- economic downturn, you don't win. now you can take a harder line. on the other hand in a second term there's often the sense that you have a narrow window on domestic issues with congress,
5:19am
probably about a year, maybe two at the most to get things done and then your attention usually turns more to foreign policy. but the biggest thing is that 1600 pennsylvania avenue is kind of a dangerous neighborhood. if you hang around there long enough, the odds start going against you. often the second term has been very tough for presidents. we'll see if this one can avoid that precedent. >> never heard it described that way. dangerous neighborhood. dangerous territory. >> yes. >> ron brownstein, nice to see you this morning. thank you very much. next hour, what are we missing? is there an issue that no one is talking about now that will define the president's second term? we'll explore the possibilities. victor? >> all right. some of the drama at this year's sundance film festival is political. we'll talk with the stars of a couple documentaries that come straight out of the history books. first i want to take you to a beautiful place, the foothills of the sierra nevada mountains.
5:20am
artists are working with doctors and scientists to create some mi mind-blowing products. gary tuchman has more in this week's start small, think big. >> reporter: these skilled glassblowers are creating anatomically precise models of the human heart, brain and vascular system. not just for display, but for study. >> it is science. and it's art. >> reporter: cardiologists use the models to simulate blood flow. medical students use them for practice and medical manufacturers can techt the latest products. >> our models can be anywhere from a couple hundred dollars all the way up to our full man model that we currently make, and that can go up to $25,000. >> reporter: the company's founder, gary farlow, started making glass toys and trimpths 30 years ago in the san francisco bay area. his skill and big ideas turned into a game changing idea. >> the aha moment was when he found out that he could turn typically a metal part that was
5:21am
made in the medical industry into glass and he could produce it for way cheaper than anyplace else. >> farlow passed away last year but his legacy as an artist and entrepreneur lives on. >> we make something that's beautiful. it's art. it's hand crafted. and it's actually used for something that could potentially save someone's life. that makes me feel good that i'm involved in helping people. what are you doing? nothing. are you stealing our daughter's school supplies and taking them to work? no, i was just looking for my stapler and my... this thing. i save money by using fedex ground and buy my own supplies. that's a great idea. i'm going to go... we got clients in today. [ male announcer ] save on ground shipping at fedex office.
5:22am
[ male announcer ] save on ground shipping he's going to apply testosterone to his underarm. axiron, the only underarm treatment for low t, can restore testosterone levels back to normal in most men. axiron is not for use in women or anyone younger than 18. axiron can transfer to others through direct contact. women, especially those who are or who may become pregnant, and children should avoid contact where axiron is applied as unexpected signs of puberty in children or changes in body hair or increased acne in women may occur. report these signs and symptoms to your doctor if they occur. tell your doctor about all medical conditions and medications. do not use if you have prostate or breast cancer. serious side effects could include increased risk of prostate cancer; worsening prostate symptoms; decreased sperm count; ankle, feet, or body swelling; enlarged or painful breasts; problems breathing while sleeping; and blood clots in the legs. common side effects include skin redness or irritation where applied, increased red blood cell count, headache, diarrhea, vomiting, and increase in psa. see your doctor, and for a 30-day free trial, go to axiron.com.
5:23am
5:24am
the stars have arrived in parts of yutah for this year's sundance festival. nicole kidman, jennifer hudson and the man who founded the sundance festival a few years ago. also there in park city, enjoying the snow, nischelle turner caught up with a couple of them. >> reporter: my day was full of political power players.
5:25am
yes, indeed. i sat down with both anita hill and former governor jim mcgreevey to talk about the documentaries they have premiering here. anita hill, it's been 20 years, if you can believe it, that she testified that clarence thomas sexually harassed her in the workplace. when i talked to her she told me she had no intention of ever becoming a champion for women's rights. listen to this. did you think you were going to be making a statement and kind of the first big statement that a woman made about sexual harassment in the workplace? >> absolutely not. it wasn't my desire to talk about sexual harassment or to expose it as the critical issue it was. my desire was to give testimony about the competency of clarence thomas to be on the supreme court. and there had been all this testimony, what reflects whether or not he's going to be a good justice and whether or not he's going to be fair and impartial. and my testimony was really
5:26am
related to that in a very profound way. so, you know, it was almost like unintended consequences that the issue of sexual harassment was exposed. >> reporter: i also asked anita hill if she had forgiven justice thomas for everything that happened. she said at this point it's not about forgiveness for her, but learning lessons and moving on. let's move on to jim mcgreevey. we went through a lot of topics and he told me when he made his announcement in 2004 that he was, in fact, a gay american, he said he went through a lot of emotions, a little bit of fear, some relief but also that issue of what am i going to do now? because he had always craved the political spotlight. >> after i stepped down, a dear friend of mine said, you know, this is a great opportunity. that was like the last thing that i needed to hear. but he said there aren't many people in their mid 40s that have a chance to do life
5:27am
differently. so you need to do whatever it is that your passion and your heart tells you you should do. i always wanted to go to seminary and the dean of the seminary said jim, i need you to go up to harlem and work on a program for ex-offenders. that's where my heart completely broke open, seeing the pain, seeing the hope, seeing the possibility of transformation of these women and men. >> reporter: i also asked jim mcgreevey if he had made amends with his ex-wife, dina, after their messi and public divorce. he told me it's been nine years. we both moved on and the only thing we want is to raise an amazing daughter. back to you, victor. >> politics will be the big focus as we move forward through 2013. nischelle turner, thank you. let's bring randi kaye back in.
5:28am
nischelle looked pretty cold out there in utah. she had the crown of fur. are you staying warm? >> yes. i have a heater next to me, have gloves on and a heated blanket, victor. i'm in good shape out on the national mall this morning, happy to be here for the show this morning, preparing for president obama's second inauguration. lots of folks here. that certainly will test the elaborate security plan put in place. you just won't know which face in the crowd is watching you actually watch the event.
5:29am
5:30am
5:31am
bottom of the hour now. welcome back, everyone. i'm randi kaye, coming to you live from the national mall here in washington, d.c. this morning. i'm victor blackwell at cnn headquarters in atlanta. thank you for starting your morning with us. here are some of the stories we're watching this morning. the chance of a federal government default in the next few weeks has dropped significantly. thanks to house republican leaders who agreed to vote next week to extend the debt limit for three months. this is a 180 from their earlier refusal to delay the debate. but there's a catch. both the house and senate must pass a budget before the extension expires. and if they don't, guess what, congress won't get paid. former new orleans mayor ray nagin, is facing legal trouble,
5:32am
been indicted on 21 federal charges of corruption, including bribery, money laundering, fraud and filing false tax returns. nagin was mayor of new orleans during hurricane katrina and its aftermath. they say he used his office for personal gain, free trips, payoffs and thousands of bribes. 29 pediatric death this is season from the flu, the number of elderly people hospitalized with flu-like illnesses is also spiking according to the centers for disease control. 30 states now report high levels of the flu. that's six more than last week. for the first time, california is on the list. the season's flu vaccine is only about 62% effective. not a high number, but experts say it's still the best option for staving off the flu.
5:33am
and welcome back to the national mall. we've been getting a musical preview on the mall this morning. bands galore. there's music everywhere. everyone is getting ready for the big party and the big inauguration monday. that includes, of course, on a more serious note, secret service, police and the military. cnn pentagon correspondent chris lawrence is keeping an eye on security for us. good morning to you. how big of an operation is this? how many agencies are part of this security detail? >> reporter: randi, in all, probably more than 20 local, state, federal agencies involved to the tune of probably 10,000 to 15,000 police officers, national guard troops and federal agents. it's all being run, though, by the secret service. this has been designated a national sort of secure -- special security event. what that means is that the
5:34am
secret service is the lead agency sort of taking charge of this. there's going to be some closures. the coast guard is closing a stretch of the potomac river starting tomorrow. some of the air space will be closed off by the faa monday. all in all, because the crowds will be so much smaller, you're not going to see exactly the same kind of security precautions that we saw just four years ago. the most -- the biggest change, i think, for the people who may be coming out for this is the fact that a lot of the bridges into the city will still be open. they had to be shut down to allow the police, emergency responders and a lot of those tour buss to get through last time. this time, regular folks will be able to get in and use them just fine. >> yeah. and from what i understand, they'll also have some plain clothes police officers in the crowd as well. but a smaller crowd as you mentioned. how many people are they expecting this time around? >> yeah. last time, it was about --
5:35am
estimates, 1.8 million. they had thought maybe 800,000 this time. but already that's getting revised down. some of the folks we've talked to locally say it could be as few as 600,000, which is a tremendous drop from what we saw last time. you can see it here, randi. i'm sure where you are as well. i was here last time and i remember i just moved to d.c. a few days before the inauguration, had friends sleeping on my floor in the apartment. you come out here on a saturday, even two days before, wall to wall people on the mall. huge crowds everywhere. you just don't see that this time. you know, it just seems like it's early saturday and a lot of folks haven't gotten out yet. >> yeah. no, you see a lot of folks going for their early morning saturday run. that's about it. >> yeah. >> on a more serious note, chris, there aren't any credible threats that security officials are watching or working on? >> that's correct. we talked to some of the
5:36am
officials here and they say right now there are no credible security threats. there were no security issues last time. last time they were deal iing wh a crowd of nearly 2 million people. this time so far, no threats. i can tell you, if you are here, there are very few places anywhere near the mall where you are not being watched by some sort of camera. so, there are a lot of cameras. whether you see them or not, someone's watching. >> that is good to know. chris lawrence, thank you very much. appreciate your reporting this morning. time now to send it back to victor in studio. >> randi, thanks. lance armstrong, the other big story we're watching this weekend, one of many. he said that when his sponsors dropped him he lost $75 million in one day. but after that stunning confession this week, could he lose his freedom? our legal expert explains. [ man ] i've been out there most of my life.
5:37am
you name it...i've hooked it. but there's one... one that's always eluded me. thought i had it in the blizzard of '93. ha! never even came close. sometimes, i actually think it's mocking me. [ engine revs ] what?! quattro!!!!! ♪ i just served my mother-in-law your chicken noodle soup but she loved it so much... i told her it was homemade. everyone tells a little white lie now and then.
5:38am
but now she wants my recipe [ clears his throat ] [ softly ] she's right behind me isn't she? [ male announcer ] progresso. you gotta taste this soup. something this delicious could only come from nature. new nectresse. the 100% natural no-calorie sweetener made from the goodness of fruit. new nectresse. sweetness naturally.
5:39am
let's talk about the legal implications of this stunning confession from former cycling great lance armstrong. not one of his seven tour de france titles was a clean win.
5:40am
>> take banned substances to enhance your cycling performance? >> yes. >> yes or no, was one of those banned substances epo? >> yes. >> did you ever blood dope or use blood transfusions to enhance your cycling performance? >> yes. >> did you ever use any other banned substances like testostero testosterone, cortisone or human growth hormone? >> yes. >> well, let's bring in cnn legal contributor paul cowan. i want to open this up wide. how much legal trouble is lance armstrong facing as a result of this admission? >> he is facing an avalanche of legal problems, victor. most of them on the civil side. all of these company that is paid him millions of dollars to endorse their products now can turn around and try to get their money back on the grounds that they did it based on fraudulent
5:41am
assumptions. he faces a huge lawsuit. it's called a whistleblower lawsuit. the u.s. postal team that participated in the tour de france and was funded to the amount of $30 million, there's a lawsuit now saying that that money -- essentially, they were robbed of the value of the team because they were stripped of all of their awards because of lance armstrong's use of drugs and doping to obtain these victories. so he is facing a lot of legal problems. >> this admission means he lied under oath. we've all seen that now infamous video of him in just the white shirt and the blue background and he said that he never doped. it's perjury there. could he face jail time or is there a statute of limitations protecting him? >> this is the most interesting part of the oprah winfrey interview. how carefully crafted his admissions were. this is a confession that has a statute of limitations in mine.
5:42am
that was in 2005. in texas the statute of limitations in texas is three years. so, he's off the hook there. he can never be charged with perjury. he also says that he stopped using performance-enhancing drugs and stopped doing blood doping -- a lot of people don't talk about too much, what this doping means. it's the use of human blood to increase oxygenation. he said he did it only up until 2005, though he raced well after that. that eliminates criminal liability. no statute of limitations. he has a statute of limitations defense there. >> he did not do this by himself. there are managers, there are doctors, there are other people who maybe weren't involved or maybe they were, but they knew about it. do they face criminal charges? >> in theory, they would. the los angeles united states attorney had a very active investigation into lance armstrong going in 2010, going into 2011. there was a grand jury that was
5:43am
impanelled. and, frankly, that grand jury could still be reconstituted and reopen those investigations. highly unlikely to happen, though. the u.s. attorney pretty much knew everything that we know now except he didn't have the benefit of armstrong's on-air confession and said i'm not going to pursue the charges. had they pursued the charges and had other people been in a conspiracy with lance arm strong strong, they could theorietically been involved. he kept the blame on his shoulders and didn't really incorporate his team managers or team doctors in any appreciatable way. >> over and over, he said i want to talk about me. i'm not comfortable talking about other people. maybe that's some advice that came from his attorneys. let's talk about motive.
5:44am
there's talk that he can work something out with usada, the u.s. anti-doping agency, to have this lifetime ban lifted if he names names. they want him under oath giving these names. if there's potential for another legal challenge or other legal challenges, why bother there? >> i don't know. frankly, i find this a bit strange, this whole idea that lance armstrong is doing this because he wants to run in the new york marathon some day or get back into biking. with his age and without the use of performance-enhancing drugs i really doubt he will be seriously competitive in his field. why would he do this? why would he subject himself to this? my feeling is that he's facing all of these civil lawsuits and here is what's going to happen. they haul him into court, issue a is up and they'll start asking him questions about did you use drugs? when did you use the drugs? if he stays with the lies that he asserted in 2005, he will be
5:45am
committing perjury again and be subjecting himself to criminal exposure. now he appears on oprah, gives a full confession and now when he goes into these depositions, he's going to say, hey, i've already admitted that i was doping and i was using the drugs and he's not going to get tortured by lawyers, question by question. he's going to eliminate the possibility of future perjury. i think he is thinking about his legal swigs more so than his sports situation in coming forward and getting this done. >> this wasn't just a mea culpa but probably very carefully crafted by his team of attorneys. >> i think so. >> aside from the endorsements and the sport that people care about is livestrong, the cancer charity he started. could they possibly face some legal consequences? >> i don't think they will. but it's a tragic situation. when you see this guy talk, victor, there's a duality to his
5:46am
personality. he has this wonderful charity, he has helped so many people through this charity. yet at the same time, he was engaging in criminal activity, you know, using drugs that were illegal drugs and then not only doing that, but i think the real knock on him is when people told the truth about him, his teammates told the truth about him, he sued them, accused them of being liars and destroyed lives. so he's got sort of a split personality. but i think we all have to hope that his charity will survive because it certainly has been helpful to a lot of people and it has not been implicated in any way in criminal or illegal activity. i'm hopeful that the foundation will survive. >> he admitted in that first night that at the height of his fame he was part jerk and part humanitarian. and we are certainly seeing the parts of what he has confessed so far for some of those things that come to be true. paul callan from new york, thank you so much. >> nice being with you. >> if you're looking for some

presidential inauguration collectibles, from buttons to collectible champagne glasses and things that are much more unusual than that, we're checking out some of the most popular and most bizarre things to remember this weekend. first when traveling to other cities and countries, the best way to get a real taste of the place, i find, is through the local food. i love to eat wherever i go. cnn ireporters teamed up with travel and leisure magazine to create a global list of 100 places to eat like a local. here is cnn's paula hancocks in seoul, south korea, with a sample. >> reporter: i'm paula hancocks in seoul. and when i want to eat like a local i come down here to this restaura restaurant. it's just as much about the trimmings as it is about the meat. all these side dishes they give you are free. you can basically ask for as many refills as you want.
5:48am
you only pay for the meat. here you have the pickled vegetable dish that korea is famous for. finally, the meat. this is hanu beef, from a special breed of cattle raised here in korea. some farmers will massage them because they believe it increases the blood flow and others will actually feed them beer within their feed because they believe that that actually makes the meat taste juicier. this marbling, all the fat you can see running through the meat is very important for flavor. this is usually a very social event, the korean barbecue, you would have a big group of friends or work colleagues around you and also usual ly be sampling the local tipple called soju. it's a rice distilled liquor, quite similar in something to taste like vodka, but it is lunch so i won't be partaking.
5:49am
once the meat is cooked, you eat. there's process. let me show you. dip it into the red bean paste, put it on the lettuce leaf. add whatever you want. it's up to you. there's garlic. i'm going to have it raw. you can have it cooked. little bit of salad, anything else you fancy. you wrap it up, like you would a parcel, and pop it in your mouth. so if you want to eat like a tourist, stick to the guide book. but if you want to eat like a local, come down to miga. >> we can't drink at lunch? who created that rule? go to ireport.com/100 places. whenever i go to blank i have to go to blank. fill in those blanks and send us a photo of your favorite restaurant and dish and why it's special and how you discovered this place. the list of 100 places to eat

5:56am
swearing in ceremony. the tickets are free and they're printed with not for sale. however if you look at online sites like craigslist, you'll see plenty up for sale ranging in price from hundreds to thousands of dollars. emily schmidt, cnn, washington. president obama will also face a whole lot of challenges in his second term. jobs, tax reform, unstable middle east, just to name a few. tonight at 8:00 pm eastern time, fareed zakaria will get solutions from top political experts in memo to the president. inaugurations have come in every shape and size from roosevelt to bush. another roosevelt to another bush. we'll look back at all the top moments. but first a question for all the political junkies, tuned in and watching this morning. what month has had the most

6:03am
news to tell you about. it involves the ongoing hostage crisis in algeria, involving americans and other western nationals. we are learning that the algerian military has now launched a final assault on islamist militants holding foreigners captive at a gas facility in the sahara desert, according to the official algerian radio station. it says seven hostages and 11 of their kidnappers have been killed. hundreds of people at the facility were taken hostage when the heavily armed militants attacked it on wednesday. algerian special forces carried out a military rescue operation on thursday. some 650 people were freed or escaped but at least one american and 11 others have now been killed. back here in washington now, here we are, set up, in the cold on the national mall. guess what, we're not alone.
6:04am
cnn has reporters spread out across washington. we're all keeping tabs on preparations for this weekend's big inauguration events. let's start with our white house correspondent dan lothian, trying to keep warm here next to me. we know that president obama will be sworn in just before noon tomorrow. what's on his docket today? and what about the vice president as well? >> the president and the vice president kick off inauguration weekend by taking part in a national service project, along with their families. the white house, not saying specifically what they will be doing. back in 2009, the president helped to spruce up a homeless shelter for teens and he also visited with wounded warriors at walter reed. the white house has really been pushing that through social media, encouraging people across the country to get engaged not just on this day, but every day in their communities. this has been going on, on twitter and facebook as well. this is a tradition that the president started four years ago. the hope is that other
6:05am
presidents will continue this in the future. >> dan lothian, thank you very much. let's check in with shannon travis. shannon, what's happening there? >> randi, in addition to the president and the first family and vice president biden, hundreds of thousands, potentially, of other americans will also be participating in this day of service. i'm here at one of the nerve centers here in washington, d.c. where in just about half an hour from now they're going to kick off this day of service. hillary -- excuse me, chelsea clinton, the daughter of hillary and bill clinton, the chairman, honorary chairman of this committee. eva longoria, gospel singer yolanda adams will be here as well. a stress, focus on health, education, veterans' affairs, faith, family sbed kags. ra and education.
6:06am
randi? >> thank you. chris lawrence has a look at the security at the inauguration. good morning to you. >> reporter: we talked to federal officials here. they're telling us right now there are no credible security threats to disrupt the inauguration. no credible threats to disrupture the inauguration right now. what we're seeing really is pulling in help from all over the country. the country is pitching in to make sure that this inauguration goes on well. d.c. police are pulling in another 2,000 to 3,000 officers from around the country. the fbi will be helping the secret service, who is running the overall security effort. the big difference this year will be the crowd. last time, nearly 1.8 million visitors descended on the city. this time the crowd could be maybe a third of that. 600,000 or so. and that means some big changes. the biggest of which probably is the fact that the bridges, which feed into the city from
6:07am
virginia, will most likely be open for traffic. so a lot easier to get around this time. but the eyes in the sky and all around will still be watching. there are very few places you can walk around the mall right now that a camera somewhere, some place, is not going to be watching you, randi. >> chris lawrence, thank you very much. our thanks to all of our reporters on this story this morning. let's check in with victor blackwell, back in studio in atlanta. victor? >> thank you, randi. to this notre dame linebacker, manti todayo and his fake girlfriend, this whole hoax controversy. he spoke with espn last night. it's his first interview that he gave since the story first broke that his dead grirl friend never really existed. todayo says he was not part of the hoax and was a victim. he also says that ronaiah tuiasosopo has admitted to the hoax. we went to his home in
6:08am
california, but the person there would not comment. the other big story americans are talking about, the two-part interview of lance armstrong with oprah winfrey. he said his 13-year-old son made him want to come clean. armstrong teared up just a bit when he recalled telling his son that he should not defend his record anymore, but rather respond with apologies. armstrong also called leaving the board of his livestrong foundation his, quote, lowest point. now back to randi in washington. tell us who she's got lined up. let's find out who is with randi. randi? >> thanks, victor. not far from where dr. martin luther king gave his historic "i have a dream" speech back in 1963 right here on the national mall. in just moments from now i'll be joined by clarence jones. he is a close, personal friend of mlk and a contributor on that very speech. and he will tell us what he
6:09am
wants to see from president obama's speech, his inaugural speech coming up on monday. let me assert my firm belief that the only thing we have to fear is fear itself. i've always had to keep my eye on her... but, i didn't always watch out for myself. with so much noise about health care... i tuned it all out. with unitedhealthcare, i get information that matters... my individual health profile. not random statistics.
6:10am
they even reward me for addressing my health risks. so i'm doing fine... but she's still going to give me a heart attack. we're more than 78,000 people looking out for more than 70 million americans. that's health in numbers. unitedhealthcare. how did i know? well, i didn't really. see, i figured low testosterone would decrease my sex drive... but when i started losing energy and became moody... that's when i had an honest conversation with my doctor. we discussed all the symptoms... then he gave me some blood tests. showed it was low t. that's it. it was a number -- not just me. [ male announcer ] today, men with low t have androgel 1.62% (testosterone gel). the #1 prescribed topical testosterone replacement therapy, increases testosterone when used daily. women and children should avoid contact with application sites. discontinue androgel and call your doctor if you see unexpected signs of early puberty in a child, or signs in a woman, which may include changes in body hair or a large increase in acne,
6:11am
possibly due to accidental exposure. men with breast cancer or who have or might have prostate cancer, and women who are or may become pregnant or are breastfeeding, should not use androgel. serious side effects include worsening of an enlarged prostate, possible increased risk of prostate cancer, lower sperm count, swelling of ankles, feet, or body, enlarged or painful breasts, problems breathing during sleep, and blood clots in the legs. tell your doctor about your medical conditions and medications, especially insulin, corticosteroids, or medicines to decrease blood clotting. so...what do men do when a number's too low? turn it up! [ male announcer ] in a clinical study, over 80% of treated men had their t levels restored to normal. talk to your doctor about all your symptoms. get the blood tests. change your number. turn it up. androgel 1.62%.
6:12am
i am happy to join with you today in what will go down in history in the greatest celebration of freedom in the history of our nation. >> the first words of dr. martin luther king's unforgettable and historic "i have a dream speech" given right here on the washington mall in 1963. the speech marked a turning point in the civil rights movement. and tomorrow on the very day the country set aside to honor dr. king, barack obama, america's first african-american president, will take the oath of office for the second time. i'm joined by dr. clarence b.
6:13am
jones, a close friend of dr. king and a speech writer who contributed to the "i have a dream" speech. good to have you with us. >> thank you. my honor. >> i'm curious what it's like for you to be back here on the national mall, about to see history again. >> there's so much to be said about the 50th anniversary. what it means to me, it brings back some memories of 50 years ago. the "i have a dream" -- the speech, the march on washington, probably would not have occurred but for the demonstrations in birmingham, alabama. the key to understanding the history before the "i have a dream" speech and the march on washington is birmingham, alabama. because that's what turned -- that's what's elevated the conscience of the nation. it was america seeing young african-american boys and girls
6:14am
being slammed up against the wall by firehoses. and bitten by police dogs. those who were participated in dr. king's effort to desegregate birmingham, alabama. that raised the question nationally as to what kind of country are we? and so what dr. king and others, other people in the civil rights movement did in organizing the march was simply build upon the victories, limited victories in birmingham, but wanted to come together to validate what had been achieved but also to raise the national conscience. i think of birmingham, alabama, very much like obama -- president obama is dealing with the question of gun violence and so forth. and it's because of dr. king, he raised the question to the
6:15am
nation. we are a nation better than this. >> and that was right here on this mall. wh what does the timing mean to you? certainly just before we came out of the commercial break. dr. king would have turned 84 on monday. certainly some interesting timing here as well. >> yeah. he was two years older than me. i just turned 82 the week before. what it really -- what it really means, the confluence of the commemoration of his 84th birthday and the president's second inaugural, i see the power wheel between what brought dr. king to prominence in birmingham, alabama, in which he sought to raise the conscien conscienceness of the nation against segregation. and on the 15th of september, four little girls lost their lives in the bombing of the
6:16am
baptist church. you had violence. >> right. >> you had fred shuttlesworth that was beaten so many times. the question that both happened in birmingham and is now happening tomorrow, whenever the inauguration occurs, it presents the question to the nation, are we a nation that's better than what happened to the children in sandy hook? are we a nation better than what we saw 50 years ago in birmingham, alabama? so the question is, just as someone so eloquently stated, they're killing our babies. but that was sort of the turning point. >> what do you want to hear from the president on monday when he gives his inaugural speech? what do you want to hear? >> i want to hear him have an extension of what was, i call it, a political program when he got the biden recommendations.
6:17am
essentially, i want him to have a nonviolent call to arms and say to the nation that i am taking this oath of office, commemorating the 84th birthday of the american apostle of nonviolence, and i think that we, as a nation, can do no less to summon the better angels of ourselves to, at this time, at this place, to rededicate ourselves irrevocably to nonviolent resolution where violence is the choice of gun and violence is not a rational option. that's the best way we can honor that extraordinary man. >> very quickly, the president will be taking the oath, using
6:18am
two bibles on monday. >> right. >> one of them will be martin luther king's travel bible. what does that mean to you? >> well, it -- i did not know that. it means that the president is a wise man. i've seen that bible in his briefcase. i saw that bible in dr. king's briefcase many times. if he's going to take the oath of office on that bible, then it reinforces what i said. you can't take the oath on that bible unless you're going to rededicate the nation to america's apostle of nonviolence, which means you have to elevate -- debt ceiling is important, but at the end of the day, we have to -- you have to say to the nation, we are better than what occurred at sandy hook. we are better than what occurred in birmingham, alabama, in 1963. >> clarence jones, so nice to
6:19am
have you here. >> thank you. it's my honor. >> thank you very much. >> thank you. up next, a closer look at what the next four years may hold. the issues and the expectations as well. we'll be back from the national mall. my husband and i can't stop eating 'em! what's...that... on your head? can curlers! tomato basil, potato with bacon... we've got a lot of empty cans.

president obama's second term officially starts this weekend. the inaugural celebration is monday but this morning we're look i looking to the next four years. maria cardona is joining me now and in new york, anchor amy holmes of the blaze. we asked you to give us your top three issues for the next four years. maria, we'll look at yours first. economic growth and job creation. two is dealing with the debt. and number three is immigration. so, let's go through them quickly. give me your thoughts on those. >> so, i think first of all, clearly, everyone's focus is still job creation, because this is the number one issue. and it has been for a long time, for a lot of those americans who are still out of work. the second thing is that goes hand in hand with the debt and the deficit. and while republicans love to
6:23am
think that obama's not focused on the debt and deficit, doesn't want to do anything about it, that is absolutely not the case. he has said from the very beginning that it is a big priority but that we need to do it in a balanced way so that we don't hurt those that are most vulnerable. the third is immigration. after this election, the latino community, the latino vote, big reason why this president was re-elected. he owes them that. it has been a priority for him. he is going to find a way to get it done. hopefully republicans understand if they want a chance to get to the white house any time in the next four years, eight years, a generation, they'll have to do something on immigration. >> all right. so, amy, maria's number three is your number one. which is immigration. number two is obama care. number three, mystery scandal. so, let's talk about immigration, first. though i'm dying to get to that scandal. >> good morning. it's so great to see that view behind you. i used to have a view down the mall at my old job working for the senate majority leader and when i worked for bill frist and
6:24am
george bush was president, they tried to get immigration reform done. unfortunately that didn't happen. with a lot of democratic pushback, they didn't want to tackle that issue. i agree with maria that immigration is going to be very central on the president's agenda the next four years as well as the republican agenda, both because it's the right thing to do, it is a pressing issue and also because of the electoral pressure that both parties have to tackle this directly. number two, obamacare. we are only now seeing sort of the fallout and consequences of that legislation. there are lawsuits all around -- dozens of lawsuits, actually, against the administration on obamacare when it comes to religious liberty. we're seeing health care premiums are already sky rocketing. so, we have yet to really see the -- as i say, the consequences of obamacare. i think you'll see republicans tackling that in the next four years. and finally, last, mystery scandal. >> scandals. we're waiting. we're both waiting here. >> none of us know.
6:25am
>> mystery scandal. >> none of us know but we do know that second terms for presidents often embroil presidents in scandal. ronald reagan had iran-contra, bill clinton had monica lewinsky. i'm partial to sex scandals. obviously i would never hope for that for our president. i would hope that nothing like that would ever consume his presidency. however, we do know that second terms are often a grab bag of congressional investigation. >> yeah. so how much time, maria, do you think the president will really have to focus on whichever issues, whatever order you want to look at them at, minus the scandals, we hope? how much time will he have to really get anything done? >> not a lot. we're already seeing a lot of movement and talk about the 2014 mid terms and how difficult it's going to be for either republicans to do what they need to do on immigration, for example, because the people in
6:26am
their districts don't want it. we're already seeing a lot of talk about how some of these issues will be difficult for democrats in red states who want to keep their seats in the senate. the president needs to do this now and republicans would be smart to do a lot of this now so they can move on to those elections. after that, we'll be focusing on the 2016 elections. >> already. >> there's not a lot of time. the approval rating for republicans is completely upside down. so they know that if they want to fix that approval rating and prove to americans that they do have their back, the middle class especially -- that was a big focus in this election and a big reason why republicans lost as well, then they're going to want to work with this president to get something done. >> very quickly, amy, your final thought. just 20 seconds. >> final thought that i love the american democratic process. we had an election. we have a president. we have leaders who work every day in that building behind you. and i think monday is a day of celebration for our country.
6:27am
